« on: October 01, 2017, 11:17:22 AM »
the grain/flour purveyor is there today with a wide array of stuff, and said she'll be returning on 10/29.

also, a distillery from Cooperstown with bourbon, whiskey, gin and samples  ;D

The gin was great too! And buckwheat flour from the grain people and even Gewurztraminer grapes!  The market was just amazingly overflowing with goodies today.

And start another topic if you want jump on defenseless dogs when the topic had nothing to do with it. It's about ownership not breed.

The Hawthorne Valley maple vanilla yogurt is really delicious! I wish I had bought more than 2.

Anyone have a helpful hint for keeping track of apple varieties? I know Stayman Winesap is one of my favorites. Today the orchard had several new varieties I hadn't heard of. I asked the farm owner about taste, etc. and I selected a few new ones to try. Only problem is when I get them home I have no idea which is which.

Perhaps separate bags?  (Bring a little notepad so that you can mark which is which when purchasing.)

I can't believe how delicious the Ambrosia apples are.  Out of this world!!!

I'll try that next week if I can remember to bring separate bags. I don't feel right taking a large plastic bag for each apple variety that I choose. Sometimes I am buying at least 5 different ones!

I also sampled those fine gin, and bought a bottle. It will be nice if we have a few rotating vendors. I talked to the grain lady too, she said they will be here once a month and introduce different distillery each time.

Take a photo of each variety of apple with the sign labeling it in the picture?

Good idea. I'll try that if I forget the extra little bags.

In case anyone's wondering, despite the forecast of heavy rain later in the day today, 10/29/17, the greenmarket is mostly operational. There do seem to be a few stands missing, like the large produce stand that usually sets up on the corner of 78th. Hawthorne Valley is next to that spot today, which is not their usual spot. The apple orchard is missing but you can still get apples at the other place further down 78th. I think there are one or two other stands missing as well.

I haven't been able to find eggs at the greenmarket for the past few weeks, and I'm wondering if I'm getting there too late or if they just haven't been available? Haven't seen Tellos in awhile, Sawkill normally has eggs in addition to meat but they usually sell out early. However I was more prompt than usual this morning (pre 10 AM) and Sawkill didn't have them + still no Tellos. Is this a seasonal thing? Would love to hear if others have a farm-to-table egg source in the neighborhood that I'm missing...
thanks!

Does anyone know if Hawthorne Valley Farm is at the greenmarket today, 1/14/18? The temps are quite cold again and last week they were not there, presumably due to the extreme cold.

Yes, birds don't breed during winter, they breed towards spring. So all of those little biological details that go into the breeding process are put on hiatus.

They do have pasture raised, humane certified eggs at Downtown Natural Market. Brought to us from farms in warmer climes and longer breeding seasons, but with the added carbon footprint of being trucked to the Winterlands.
